Welcome to Barkham
This web site is about Barkham, an attractive semi-rural area on the outskirts of Wokingham in the county of Berkshire, and is the work of the Barkham Village Residents Association (BVRA).
Our aim is to:
- provide news of what is going on in Barkham and the surrounding area
- supplement the information provided by our BVRA newsletters (4 issues each year)
- provide regular reports on Wokingham Borough Council’s development plan
- develop a stronger local community

Our next social event is a skittles night. It will be held on Saturday March 4th March (7 for 7:30) in the village hall. Tickets are £5 for primary school children and £10.00 for others. The price includes supper and as usual there will be a licensed bar and raffle.
For tickets please contact Gill Powell on 978 3373 or email her using the Contact BVRA menu option at the top of this page.

BVRA Social Secretary Vacancy
Judith Collins is planning to downsize and move out of Barkham. Judith has been our Social Secretary for several years and, together with the rest of the Social Committee has organised the various regular social events we hold each year, such as the quiz and the Easter Egg Hunt. On behalf of all Barkham residents we are very grateful to Judith for her work in leading the committee.
However it is now time to pass on the baton! Please consider volunteering to take on this important and interesting role on behalf of the Barkham community. Judith will be happy to provide more details as to what the role entails and to support the new Social Secretary as they “learn the ropes”.
Alternatively, if would like to help but do not feel able to take on the leading role, the Social Committee is always looking for new members and ideas for events so please consider helping by joining the committee.
Judith can be contacted here
